    My wife found me rolling around on the floor after that one.

    Mr Ho : "I'm about 400m away from the site when it happened"

    CNA : (hesitant) " What did u see ?"

    Mr Ho :" By the Time i got there the police cordoned off the area"

    CNA : " Thank u MR HO .." ( DOH! )

    apparently, one of the tunnel walls gave way. some civil engineer is going to get it big time.

    LTA's initial assessment showed that the soil subsidence that affected Nicoll Highway was caused by the collapse of the temporary wall supporting the excavation site for the tunnels leading towards the Nicoll Highway MRT Station along Circle Line Stage 1. No motorists were travelling along Nicoll Highway when the incident occurred.

    Members of public can also refer to the LTA website for the full press release and updates.

    if there was a superbus loaded full of passengers on that stretch when the road gave in... that would have been really horrid.

    this is indeed a sad sight.

    But how many of you really wished that you were there with your camera when the incident happened?

    area affected is actually size of 2 football fields! At least that's what the news reports said last night. The basketball court description probably applied only to the cave in at the highway instead of the entire area that caved in. Besides, it seems that the cave in area grew by quite a bit after the initial cave in, hence the basketball court description may have been accurate for a moment of time.
